Featured Review

Current Employee - Service Engineer

I have been working at PerkinElmer full-time for more than a year

Pros

Upper management is really good. Hands on meetings are great to share company insights with employees. Environment is 100% professional and funny.

Cons

Not that I can think of.

Advice to Management

Keep up doing the really good work.

Current Employee - Field Service Specialist

I have been working at Waters full-time for less than a year

Pros

If you can manage your time wisely, this is definitely the job for you. You set your own schedule, and as long as you meet the needs of the customers, you are pretty well set. Very good benefits... and a very laid back place to work.

Cons

There is a lot of travel, especially at the beginning of your career as an FSS. This is because of all of the training and certifications you must obtain in order to perform the job.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. Happy employees lead to happy customers and happy bosses.
